Hi! It’s Steve from PartSelect. Today, we
are going to show you how to change the lower gasket on your dishwasher door and it’s
a really easy job. All we are going to need is a pair of Needle-nose pliers and a flat
blade screwdriver. Let me show you how we do it. Now the first step in this repair will
be to open the dishwasher door completely, and then we are going to remove any items
around the bottom rack, and then remove the rack itself and set it aside, and with a pair
of Needle-nose pliers, we will locate the edge of that gasket in one corner, and then
we are just going to push that back enough that we can reach inside, and grasp it with
our pliers, and then we are going to pull it straight out, and we need to take note
of how that gasket fits in there. There is an arrow-shaped lip on one edge of it that
actually has two ribs on it. That is the side of the gasket that will push into the door,
and the other edge has one strip on it that has a slight bend downwards and that is the
orientation that we need to put the new one in with the single edge pointing down. So
we will discard the old gasket. We will take our new gasket and make sure we have it laid
out the right way, and there is a notch on one end as well, that will line up with an
opening there. So before we go to fit that in, we will take a flat blade screwdriver
just going to reach into that groove, clean any soap crud or food debris out of that slot,
and make sure that we have a nice clean fit. Now that we have cleaned that groove out,
as we go to put the new gasket in, we will start with the end that has the notch on it.
You may need to pull up on that inner door panel enough to make your fit a little easier.
Once we have got that notch in position, we can just work our way along the length of
the gasket. We have it pressed firmly into position, and it should be even all the way
across the bottom of that inner door panel. If any portion of its sticks out, we will
need to pull that back out, and make sure that we have got that groove cleaned out properly,
and once we have it fitted in, we can now put our lower rack back in place, close up
the door and our repair is complete. I told you it was an easy job. Thanks for watching
and good luck with your repair.
